    Earlier I sprayed bug spray around the windows of my house and since my chickens have the run of the backyard sometimes when I walk outside they try to run in. One of my chickens 9 weeks old ate a dead fly that had to have died from me spraying the window. Will she be OK or will she get sick?

    Your chicken would have to eat a whole lot more than one fly. It takes a vey small amount to kill a fly.

    Your chick wii be just fine.
